    Full Description

    Grenache 51% | Mourvedre 49%

    Drawing on Estate plantings of Grenache and Mourvedre the fruit is picked early to retain freshness and delicacy, with the grapes crushed and pressed with as little oxygen contact as possible to preserve the fresh fruit characters.
    A technique favoured in Provence is then used to increase texture and mouthfeel, by mixing the cold juice (including the pulp and solids) with nitrogen gas briefly each day over four days.
    The wine is then racked to produce clear juice and fermented with a specific Rosé yeast at 10/14 degrees for 2 weeks prior to being filtered and bottled.

    Given the well-deserved hype around our Tahbilk Grenache Mourvedre Rose, the last four releases receiving 95, 95, 96 and 93 "Halliday Points" respectively as well as a Trophy and Gold Medal for the 2017 ; then you can well understand the excitement for our Tahbilk 2021 Rose offering!
    A comingling of Grenache and Mourvedre by the winemaking team has delivered yet another stylish, savoury, dry and instantly recognisable Estate release.
    Lifted and spicy with vibrant red berry, musk and cherry fruits that sit deliciously on a lively finish graced with fresh grape acidity . . . early enjoyment is the mantra here. That enjoyment could be with a sashimi sushi platter or chicken and prawn pad Thai or just the simple delight of a glass itself.

    Don't take our word for it ...

    "2022 Top Value Selections
    A Rosé of serious intent focusing on two Rhone Valley varieties perfectly in sync. Boasts concentrated flavour and a degree of complexity not seen at this price. Morello cherry, raspberry, rose and cardoman spice up this confection-pink Rosé. Juicy energy in the mouth. Flavour is intense and runs deep with a firm tannin grip as company. A Rosé to savour."
    Jeni Port | www.winecompanion.com.au 

    "Vibrant light cherry/cerise colour. Carrying herbaceous leafy notes to offset white peach, easy red currant and raspberry fruit, musk and brown spice. Dry and savoury, carrying a little heft and good grip with a bright zippy finish. A good counterpoint to wan, thin Rosé styles."
    vinonotebook.com

    “Think Provence style Rosé, but dial up the red berry vibes.Sharing similar savoury characteristics, Tahbilk’s dry-style Rosé is overloaded with raspberries, watermelon, ripe stone fruit, lively grapefruit and a whisper of musk. Winemaker Alister Purbrick picks these two sun-loving varieties (Grenache and Mourvèdre) early to keep things tasting fresh, Another Nagambie winner.”
    Kara Monssen | Melbourne Herald-Sun

    “Good buying/drinking to be had here. Pale crimson-orange in colour, dry and spicy in style but with just-enough fruit to give it more-ishness.
    Watermelons, strawberry and earthen-spice characters make for lip-smacking drinking.  Don’t expect weight, expect refreshment. 90 Points”
    Campbell Mattinson | www.winefront.com.au

    “Seriously good year after year, this wine is packed with fresh flavours of vibrant red berries, musk and cherry.
    Food match: Roasted sumac lamb kofta with chickpeas”
    Delicious Magazine

    “Red apple skins, strawberries, pomegranate, pink peppercorns, white pepper and raspberry pip. Hints of watermelon. A super cleansing finish. This is pure pleasure. There’s enough minerality and texture here to make this a very interesting drink, very saline on the palate. This is a boating wine.”
